Now that fall is here and, with it, cooler days, I finally found a weather-appropriate day to model my striped knit rugby shirt which, you may or may not recall, I completed late last summer.
You can view it today by clicking here.
Rugby shirts are one of those garments that never really go out of style, though they definitely had a higher profile here in the States during the mid-Seventies/Eighties preppy craze -- remember The Official Preppy Handbook?
Anyway, I think mine, which is a bit of a variation on the classic style pictured up top, is a great addition to my wardrobe -- easy to wear and flatteringly trim cut.
I'll admit it: I know absolutely nothing about rugby. But throw on a blue blazer and stand next to a French music/style icon like Francoise Hardy, and anything's possible.
